Sixers Capture Win Over Bobcats
Lou Williams scored 17 points and Jrue Holiday had 15 to help the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Charlotte Bobcats 89-72 on Friday night.
Jodie Meeks scored 14 points for the Sixers, who bounced back from a rare home loss and still haven’t lost two straight games all season.
The Sixers won in front of co-owners Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The Hollywood power couple had a front-row seat for their first Sixers game of the season. Their son, Jaden, also watched the Sixers romp. Fans rhythmically chanted “We’ve got Will Smith! and the actor with the megawatt smile pointed toward them in appreciation.
The Bobcats scored only 10 points in the first quarter and lost their seventh straight game. Kemba Walker scored 14 points.
The Sixers improved to 9-2 at home.
